Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

Cable Retractor System
The drawing illustrates the installation of an electronic component rack and
tailgate attached to movable drawer slides. This assembly can mounted within
an electronic equipment cabinet.
Electronic cables which carry logic signals and power are plugged into
connectors on the rear of the tailgate. Uniform orderly movement of these
cables, as the component rack is moved in and out of the equipment cabinet
during maintenance and debug, requires the use of an effective cable retraction
Most cable retraction systems are made up of several pieces, are costly, and
require considerable room to operate. In addition, attachment of the cables to
the retractor and the routing of cables within the equipment cabinet may present
an impedance to the forced airflow from the bottom to the top of the cabinet.
The drawing illustrates a simple, inexpensive cable retractor system. The
simplicity of this system is the utilization of a flexible band to which the electronic
cables (flat and round) are attached. These cables are held in place along the
band using inexpensive cable ties. They are further secured at the ends of the
band with metal strain reliefs. One end of the band is attached to the tailgate,
component rack or chassis subassembly as required. The other end of the band
is attached to a vertical member which is used to mount cable raceways for
further routing of the electronic cables within the equipment cabinet.
